The weekend is here! And what better way to bring in the weekend than a cocktail! It may be winter, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a bit of summer in a drink!
This one had me at lychees. It looks goooood!
5-6 fresh mint leaves
2-3 fresh lychees (or canned)
1/2 tsp superfine sugar
15 ml fresh lime juice
15 ml simple sugar syrup
50 ml good gin
25 ml sparkling water
In a cocktail shaker, muddle mint leaves and 1/2 of the sliced lychee with 1/2 tsp of superfine sugar. Add lime juice, syrup gin and ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled glass. Top up with sparkling water (or soda) and garnish with lychees and mint.
You could change around the quantities of lime and gin to suit you tastes (and desired drink strength!).
